A Man, a Plan, a Canal – a New Family Adventure!

Land Crab in Isla Iguana - there are tons of them!

In August Beth went to Panama to check out some new ideas for 2011. We’ve been showing families the beauties of Panama for years, but we are always looking for the fresh perspective, and the places waiting to be discovered. So we decided to check out some new directions. Like El Valle de Anton, inside the crater of the world’s second largest extinct volcano. (Whoa!) And for beaches and snorkeling along with fascinating wildlife we explored the Azueros Peninsula with its artisans and Spanish influenced villages.

After witnessing troops of howler monkeys swinging through the trees, humpback whales breaching, and tropical land crabs swarming the beach, Beth feels pretty confident that we’re on the right track for a unique and wonderful new family adventure. Add to that: meeting a Diablo mask maker, pen pals with the local Embera kids, a walking tour of Casco Viejo, the old part of Panama City – and of course the Panama Canal. The perfect recipe for an awesome adventure for all generations.

Full Hearts: A Family Adventure

Abundance and Thanksgiving

A few days post Thanksgiving – for those of you who celebrate – the stuffing is polished off, the kitchen is clean, the dishwasher is emptied, the turkey soup is simmering on the stove. Every year there are Thanksgiving Family Adventures that become the stories and memories that star in your future celebrations. Tell us about yours.

Everything was perfect, or nothing at all worked like you planned. But didn’t you love it anyway? Maybe a new recipe was awful, maybe the dog grabbed the turkey leg. The cat licked the gravy. Maybe the jalapeno cranberry relish was so delicious it will show up every year. It rained, or snowed, or the sun burned bright in a clear blue sky. Was it so hot you didn’t want to turn on the oven? Maybe elderly Aunt Betty fell asleep over the pie. Maybe you had a wonderful surprise when someone you didn’t expect showed up to embrace you. You stayed home, or you traveled; you never left the house or you sat in traffic. You stayed up so late to brave Black Friday shopping, or you went afternoon bowling to make room for dessert.

However things went, planned or not, did you gather with friends and family? Keep your eye on gratitude and thankfulness? Not just for the third Thursday in November, but how about the weekend. How about our whole lives? Tell us what you did.

Whether you’re in Costa Rica or Chicago, St Louis or the Galapagos Islands, Sonoma or Cairo, don’t forget to cherish your every day family adventures.

Tell us what you’re doing!
